“Love was a tormenting emotion. It was powerful and untrustworthy. Like a crocodile, it waited at bay, camouflaged, making you feel safe and secure. then out of nowhere, it sprang and wrapped its uncompromising jaws around your entire body, crushingly, devastatingly unbearable.”
Lexie Taylor is a relatable, animal-loving girl who has recently been heartbroken with the death of someone very close to her. She has shut everyone out, trying to ignore the grief that is trying so hard to break her down. During her first few shifts as a student nurse at a hospital, Lexie meets a new patient named Myall. Instantly she is fascinated by him, and and not long after they meet he tells her a secret that changes her entire view of the human existence. Set in the intriguing landscape of Australia, Reigntime is the story of Lexie, a seventeen year old nursing student who is suddenly thrust into a world she could never have imagined.
This is the first book in a series, so there is a lot of information packed in for the reader to understand the world these characters are in. S.K. Levy explains it all in such a well-written way though that it is easily understood, and she makes it exciting and leaves you wanting to know more of this great new reality Lexie is put in. Throughout the book, the relationship between Lexie and Myall is refreshing and intense. They help each other heal, one emotionally, the other physically, and without intending to, fall in love. The connection between them is electric, and the reader will be rooting for them from the beginning.
Reigntime has a lot of aspects in it that I found really fun and appealing. The author is great at giving just enough hints at the mysteries that keeps it captivating, and makes a great setup for the rest of the series. There is a lot of humor in this book too, I found myself laughing out loud on more than one occasion. The action had my heart racing, and I was having a hard time staying still in my seat. This book is a really fun read, I love the adventure in it, but it is also an emotional journey for Lexie and Myall.
I really loved this book. When I wasn’t reading it, I was thinking about it. Trying to figure out the reason why some characters were they why they were, and what was to come next. S.K. Levy is a very talented writer, creating a world that is both unique and compelling. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
I was given a copy by the author in exchange for my honest review.
